Needs some work
While trying track multiple friends, it's difficult with the lack of splits. Maybe every 5 miles. GPS tracking has been simplified over the years. It can't be that difficult to increase the data.
Also, let's streamline the measurements. The app map is calculated in miles but the app splits are calculated in kilometers. Let's simplify for the user. Having to do calculations to determine how many miles in kilometers does not make it a good experience.
Can't track runners on map
During the race I overheard many people make the same comment that I was thinking, which was, "this app is pretty much useless."
The only tracking this does is to give times at 10k 20k 30k and finish. Trying to track an individual runner based on this is pretty much impossible. It would be great if you could actually get an idea as to where a runner was in real time. We missed our runner!
Not good at all.
Nothing fancy here but does what's needed.
Just the basics here. Easy to use and track runners. Has all the info on the expo.
